Joining The Support Board
Our Bulletin Board is run for parents and families by parents and families who share the experience of coping with a child, teenager or young adult who believes she or he is transgender. 

Anyone in that situation is welcome to join us. But first:

Some points about confidentiality:

The board was set up as a place for us to discuss our stories, issues and problems in a respectful and non-judgemental space. However, we have no way to verify the identity of members. 

We Cannot Guarantee Confidentiality.

Therefore, we cannot guarantee that everyone on the board will be there in good faith. It is probably safe to operate under the assumption that the forum is being watched by those who would wish us ill. 

Choose an anonymous user name, don't reveal identifying details about yourself, and use appropriate caution when interacting with others on the forum. 

The system requires a valid email address as part of the registration process. This email is stored in case you forget your password, but is not visible to other members unless you explicitly choose to make it visible.

The system logs all personal messages and emails sent from the board.  These are not visible to other members, but can be seen by the moderators and may be examined if you are suspected of abusive behaviour. The moderators may examine the message logs to check that personal messages are not being abused. The moderators have not wish to police what people think or say, but will try protect the members from abuse and take whatever steps they feel are needed.

What's on the board stays on the board.

We ask you to respect the privacy and confidentiality of other members of the board.
By registering on this discussion system you agree that you will not disclose, share, download or copy any information or text posted on the discussion system by other users without their explicit permission. You will not describe, discuss or report information about the system, users or material that they have posted. 

Any information you provide on these forums will not be disclosed to any third party without your complete consent, although the staff cannot be held liable for any hacking attempt in which your data is compromised, or for the behaviour of other members of the board.

By continuing with the sign up process you agree to the above rules and any others that the Administrator specifies.

If you wish to join us, you can click the registration link above. After you have filled in and submitted your details, you will receive an email. If you follow the instructions in the email, your membership will then be held up until a moderator activates it.

Please be patient. Once you are registered, your account must be manually activated by a forum moderator. This can take anywhere from a few minutes to a day or two, depending upon the availability of our volunteer moderators.

After activation, you will be able to see the members-only sections of the board.
I thought I was registered? How do I get to members only?
Hi Bandmom, are you still having trouble accessing the members' forum? If so, post here again and we will see what can be done to fix it.
Hello, I have just joined but cannot access any board at the moment. Is there something else I need to do?

You're membership was waiting for a mod to approve it, sorted now.

Hello and welcome. I have activated your account so you should be able to access to entire board now.
How do I know if I'm in the member's only section? I did register and validate my email.
Hi Georgie,

Your account has been activated. You should have access to the members forums now.
It looks like folks have trouble accessing the member's forum after registering and email account verification. I too am having that problem but I could not tell if it gets fixed when someone goes back in and activates the account or if there is a delay in activating the account and it happens on its own after the registration process.

Not sure how this will all play out
